    I think Blake Griffin went Captain Willard and punched a mirror.

    In all seriousness, I wonder how long this'll keep him out. Especially if it's his shooting hand.

    Sauces: he was unhappy with the poutine they served in the visitors locker room so he punched the server.

    What an idiot. When his hand does eventually heal, the Clippers should suspend him for his stupidity.

    I really hope this means Dwight Makes the all star game. It needs his dunks and comedy.

    Can you imagine the media if Dwight Howard was the one to punch an LA equipment guy?

    According to one report, the staff member left the restaurant after being hit one time. Blake then followed him and started hitting again.

    The way this sounds, a low-contract player would be fired from the team. Will he interesting to see how Clippers handle this.
